Ogami Ittō, formidable warrior and shōgun’s Kaishakunin. For those samurai and lords ordered to commit seppuku, the Kaishakunin assists their deaths by decapitating them to relieve the agony of disembowelment. Framed by the Yagyū clan, he loses his honor and his family is murdered. He will wander in search of revenge taking the path of the assassin. Along with him, his son Daigorō and his sword Dōtanuki.
The pedal is composed of 2 main sections: saturation/distortion & a 3-head tape delay. The signal path can be changed (i.e. from saturation -> delay to delay -> delay wet signal -> saturation), sections can be disabled, every of the pedal’s knob and switch can be assigned to different functions.
the signal gets saturated and distorted by a morphing waveshaper and a bitcrusher gives it some good grit. Depending on the waveform used you can obtain clean tones or musical distortions with lots of harmonic overtones, while the bitcrusher can be used subtly to add high frequencies or destroy the signal and create the perfect noise.
the delay is composed of a single delay buffer read by three heads at different speeds. Both the delay time and the loop lenght can be set differently for each head and synced to midi or tap tempo.
it doesn’t end here, with its powerful editor (currently available only as a max4live device, standalone version coming at launch) you gain full control on every parameter of the effect chain. You can load presets and remap every potentiometer and switch on the pedal.
Ogami Ittō’s firmware is in constant development.
Three different patch are planned for lauch and features are added on a daily base.
